Are Death Stars Really Dead? – FTN

3 Minute Read
May 15 2017

This has been a crazy week for 40k. We had a TON of rules discussion directly from the Warhammer Community team.

All this week I’ve been putting reaction videos on the FTN YouTube page. Please check them out if you haven’t already.



Yo Guys,

This week is just Chris and Paul on the mic giving our impressions of Warhammer 40k 8th Edition.  The Games Workshop is giving us a little bit of the rules each day to digest.  Today we got an update on Warzone: Damoclese.

The change to Characters is pretty big – but I think it will likely just be in perception only.  Now, if the Character isn’t the closest model then you aren’t able to target him with shooting.  This means look out sir is also gone, but a clever general will put 20-50 wounds easily between you and their heavy hitters.  No more 1-6 chance that they will have to take the saves themselves.

All in all, the nature of a Star is dead and gone, but what is taking it’s place?


The second part of the show we focus a lot on the dramatic increase in shooting efficiency from Twin Linked weapons and Combi Weapons.

Please remember the Gulf Coast Wargaming Alliance Grand Tournament, June 3rd-4th 2017. These are a great group of guys.  Registration is also open for the American Team Championship.

The Finishing Moves segment is sponsored by Frontline Gaming. Their new mats are now hot off the presses and getting ready to be shipped. Please check them out, even if you already have a game mat. Their new styles are very impressive. Frontline is hosting another destination tournament event! Tickets went on sale for the SoCal Open May 1st and are selling fast.

this week is about Blood Effects.  We talk a lot about using Blood for the Blood God technical paint but there are a lot of ways to accomplish this on your miniatures.

FTN mostly focuses on Warhammer 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
